I've heard of it, but since you've given me the clue already, is there still
a point in reading it? Besides, Eliot told me that much already too
(regardless of whether he intended to or not) and that kind of message is
not very helpful. I'd rather read a book that convinces me some things are
very important - like Captain Corelli's Mandolin; or even the Mel
Gibson/Helen Hunt movie "What Women Want" which I couldn't help but love.
I say that although in the context of the universe just about everything is
pretty insignificant, in the context of our own insignificance everything we
do is extremely important.
